Redshirt sophomore running back Alden Hill has left the Tennessee football program and will seek a transfer to another suitable football program. Hill announced his decision on his Instagram account and Butch Jones confirmed the roster change.
The three-star running back product out of Ohio rushed for 58 yards and a touchdown on 10 rushing attempts in 2013. He appeared in just the first three games of the season for Tennessee and was one of six running backs returning to the Vols this season. Hill saw limited production in the spring game to end spring practices and with the depth at the position may have seen now as a good time to find a better footing in a backfield somewhere else. Hill was buried on the depth chart at Tennessee and with the amount of talent the Vols have been bringing in, there are some crowded positions on the roster.
Per NCAA transfer rules, Hill will have to sit out the fall if he transfers to another FBS program. He would be eligible to play immediately if he transfers to an FCS or lower division school.
